As the world has continued its process of reopening, the things that seemed like they were dormant have now begun to show that deep down beneath the surface growth was occurring. Before a blossom can appear, there needs to be the breakdown, and silent struggle that comes from taking root. Once the roots are developed, it is then that the seedling can emerge. Emergence is only the beginning, the plant must then be tended to, so it can grow into a viable producer. Our friends at Cheekee Greens Farms did not let a global pandemic slow their growth, in fact, their systematic approach to indoor farming has given them access to planting and harvesting year-round. Their bounty is perfect for meeting the community’s needs for local produce. The technology and techniques Cheekee Greens Farms utilizes allows for “a wholesome, cost effective, sustainable model of food production” that “creates higher volumes in smaller spaces.” Additionally, we are thrilled to announce Cheekee Greens Farms has gotten its GAP certification (because of the standard by which they produce, package, handle and safely store their grown goods) for it’s extensive mushroom growing facility and its 14,000ft hydroponic farm.
